Meet your Manchester Hosts


Phil is 28 and works in a coffee shop in Manchester City Centre. He enjoys going to gigs and festivals, comedy, watching and occasionally playing football, travelling and photography. Having lost his mum 7 years ago, he struggled to talk about his feelings to other people, so is looking forward to meeting people in the same situation, make new friends and to help and learn from each other.


Fran is a 29 year old TV Production Coordinator who’s lived in Manchester for 3 years. She is a trained Mental Health first aider & also a workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing champion- so safe to say she enjoys looking after people! She’s a music geek who loves travelling, being outdoors, meeting new people & is a bit obsessed with yoga. Having lost her Dad last year she has found talking to other “griefsters” and listening to people’s stories very comforting, so she’s looking forward to meeting everyone!

Got questions or want to speak to us?


How will I know where you are?

Our meet up Hosts will be wearing white t-shirts with Let’s Talk About Loss written on them, so you can spot us in a crowd!

Will everyone be sad?

Definitely not. Although we’ve all been bereaved, we aim to have lots of fun at meet ups and chat about lots of things, not just grief. You won’t be asked or expected to share your grief story unless you want to.

What will we do?

Most of our meet ups are activity based, so we are doing something and not just sitting around chatting. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!

How do I sign up?

You don’t need to tell us you’re coming along – feel free to just turn up! If you want to chat to someone before coming along, email us using the form on this page, and we can always meet you beforehand.
